To Love A Fool

Anybody that has ever been hurt, may hate to admit that they once loved a fool or possibly in love with one now. I don’t think we resent the fact that we were capable of loving someone rather than we resent how vulnerable it made us. The wrong person will always make you feel as if the hurt and shame you feel is solely based off of your emotions. And they had nothing to do with the misery that they caused. Whatever the case maybe we stayed longer in that relationship than we should have or maybe we haven’t left.

Could it be the fact that they displayed foolish characteristics but we longed for their company? Or maybe it is that scary feeling of being alone, so we settled. Could it be that daunting sensation that no one else could love you? Maybe its that terrifying fear of starting all over again? Nevertheless, we rely on an ounce of hope that we can change that fool and it would lead us to our happily ever after. Even after many failed attempts we try and try again.

But wouldn’t that make us just as foolish?

Albert Einstein said, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”

So that would lead us to believe that love is so powerful it could drive us insane! It’s very extreme, but still an unspoken truth. The type of love where the significant other destroys the family in either one form or another. And everyone is left wondering, “what went wrong?” For when its wrong love something will always go wrong. The bible says…

“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.” (Proverbs 13:20)

This bible verse is so potent because it reveals to you your fate if your companion is a fool. You will suffer! There is no maybe, by chance, possibility, it’s simply harm and suffering. For the days that I had to pick myself up, for the times where I was too weak to try, for the moments where I suffered the hardest my companion was a fool.

But if I could speak to you as I would have wanted someone to speak to me. That relationship does not define you. That fool does not define you. For there is courage in the Lord! For he is stronger than any man. For he is more significant than any situation. And if we would only love Him the way that He loves us, He will show us what right love is. ❤

Proverbs 14:7

Stay away from a fool, for you will not find knowledge on their lips.

    This passage at one time or another was me-not once nor twice but quite often it was the norm for me. Then I realized that my worth was much more that the human eye can see but God knew long before I did. But once my eyes were opened and the Spirit spoke…it revealed that God’s plan for me was not to be bamboosled, not to settled and most importantly not to fear what He has for me but to trust and believe that no shame is attached to being single. Although I carried the stigma associated with single mothers or divorced women, I had to stand in my truth and know that these foolish people I allowed in my life God made sure that it didn’t flourish-closed doors I didn’t think I had the strength to do but won’t He do it! Lord my Lord showed me how to pray away the foolishness out of my life and allow the blessings to flow. He opened doors that no one saw fit to be opened for me and allowed the naysayers and fools watch as He began to moved mountains and years of destruction and self-loathing out of my heart and replace it with opportunities to boast to non-believers about the mighty power of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Every chance I get to spread His goodness, I give Him the glory for using a wretch like me to be a blessing to another. Give God a chance to work it out for you for only a foolish person will continue to love a fool.
